    You probably need to activate a menu. Page navigation does not show up by default. Try going to Appearance -> Menus, create a custom menu and assign it to the navigation area. That should do the trick. :)

    Lovely, that worked perfectly! Sorry I am new to all this... But thank you!

    Also, could I ask what the hex codes for the colours are? for the shade of red, green-blue and brown? Again, I'm new to all this and have tried to look through the code, and it's hurting my brain.

    Thank you very much!

    You'll find all the color schemes' CSS in the theme folder under the css directory. You can also use an addon like Firebug to "Inspect" your site to find the hex values directly.

    Thanks Caroline!

    Ok one more question - I'd really like to customise the theme. It would be great to include a right side bar. At the moment all the widgets are squeezed into the bottom. http://www.epicuriously.com.au
    Do you offer a customisation service? Name your price. Or could you suggest to me how best to customise? Through a CSS programmer?

    It's currently hosted by a server. If that helps.

    Many thanks for any help you could offer!

    Thank you
    Maria

    I do occasionally offer theme customization depending on the scope of the work. If you're interested, shoot me an e-mail at calobee at gmail.com. I don't advertise here as per the forum rules. :)

    Hi Caroline

    I've been experimenting with my beautiful Buttercream theme to mimic http://www.epicuriously.com.au customisation, as this was what I was after too. I am a TOTAL novice (never coded before in my life) but have managed to get it working I think - subject to a couple of quick questions. (Sorry explanations make this a bit of a long message but qu's are quite short).

    My site is http://www.deliciouslyfictitious.com

    Using Firebug I extracted what I THINK were epicuriously's custom child theme style sheets (style.css, media.css and cupcake.css). I created my own child theme buttercream-df and saved these child style sheets in there. I also created a child functions.php and a few other files to get right-sidebar working etc.

    My qu's are:

    1) When I did all this my navbar (custom menu) came up at the top of the page instead of the default bottom which I wanted. Great. But it was not going all the way across the screen. Instead, (regardless of screen size), it was lining up with where posts started on the page. I fixed this by adding a new "left" property to .navbar in my child style.css so it now reads:

    .navbar {
        border-bottom: 2px solid #422619;
        border-top: 0 none;
    left: 0;
    }

    This "left" property wasn't in the epicuriously code (that I could see) so my qu is have I done this fix correctly or should I do something else to solve problem of navbar not going all the way across?

    2) What's the best way for me to call on child style sheets other than the child style.css in my child theme? To get my child theme to recognise the child media.css and cupcake.css files I've currently used @import for the child media.css file, so the top of my child style.css reads:

    @import url("../buttercream/style.css");
    
    /*Importing media.css child edits --------------------
    */
    @import url("../buttercream-df/layouts/media.css");

    This seems to have worked (I think!?) but @import did nothing when I tried it for the child cupcake.css. I have had to cut and paste that cupcake code into my child style.css directly instead.

    If there is a better way (<link rel="stylesheet"...> perhaps??) where do I put this code? I couldn't see any of these links anywhere in the parent buttercream theme php files (except the conditional ie.css stuff) so wasn't sure if this was the way to go.

    Any help greatly appreciated and really can't thank you enough for this theme. I've been looking for one as nice as this a long time!

    Hi Sam! This falls under the realm of extremely advanced customization so unfortunately I can't provide help. While the code itself is open source (as per WordPress.org requirements), it wouldn't be fair to my past clients to provide free support for a customization someone else paid for. I can only provide basic support for the parent theme. I hope you understand!

    My one piece of guidance in this regard would be to check the parent theme's functions.php to see how stylesheets are enqueued. This is likely why your @import call for cupcake.css is not working properly.

    Totally understand Caroline! Sorry, I didn't mean to ask an unfair question and you're quite right. It's not fair to give away to me what others have paid for.

    Thanks for the tip about enqueue functions. I had seen this code but wasn't 100% sure that's how the stylesheets were being called. Knowing this, I did a couple of days of trial and error and I think I've managed to get my child theme up and running 'safely' now.

    (For any wondering, I've described what I did in this thread here, which deals with a general qu to WP gurus on elegant coding solutions).

    As an aside, I noticed using IETester that my site (and other buttercream sites from what I could see) had an error in IE 7 where whole page was being obscured by an overly large navbar. I (think) I fixed this by adding the following to the .navbar code in the child style.css:

    bottom: auto !important;

    Thought I'd mention in case anyone else was having this issue.

    No worries, Sam. :) And thanks for the tip RE: IE 7!

    I'll take a look at your other thread now and see if I can assist.

    Caroline:

    I absolutely love your theme. I am happy to make a donation or pay for a premium version of this theme, if you have one. I am so frustrated, though-- it is difficult for me to create the navigation bar through the Menu section. I don't have any problems with other themes, can't figure out the Menu theme to have it work.

    This is the site I am working on: http://skymiamifoundation.com.

    Any short tutorial or walk-thru of how to set up the NAV bar through the Menu? I looked it up on youtube, couldn't find anything.

    It's too bad, because I absolutely love your theme.

    Thank you!

    I think it's resolved. It appears to be that nav bar can only be at the bottom, not customized for top of pages. Thanks.

    Hell Carolina,
    First, thanks for your lovely theme. I absolutely love it (I'll make sure I donate asap).

    This is an edit of my previous post, I solved the mystery!

    Thanks for your help,
